I think stitch gauge is still the more important factor since it will account for width of sleeve (as usual) and also length of the sweater. Row gauge will be important for width of the fronts and back and placement of neck shaping, but you can measure this in inches so itís not critical. Take a look at some patterns that are knit sideways to see how theyíre constructed (especially how they increase from the sleeve to the body and then decrease from body to sleeve). Iíve never had trouble with stretching, at least that Iíve noticed but that may depend on tightness of st gauge.
